The company’s assets will be purchased by the “affiliates” of Clearlake Capital, which is a company that describes itself as an investment firm focused on “private equity and special situation transactions.”
THQ has officially filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in a U.S. federal court in Delaware. As of today, the company’s stock was last listed at $1.22, down 84 percent from this time last year, and the stock price plummeted, as investors sold off shares in a last-ditch effort to salvage their investment.
At this time, there is no news on how this will affect WWE video games going forward. THQ may be re-organized following Clearlake’s purchase, or the assets could be auctioned off.
